Area Head Start programs now enrolling
BCFS Education Services’ Head Start is now accepting applications for 3- and 4-year-olds in Atascosa, Wilson, and Karnes counties, which includes Charlotte, Jourdanton, Pleasanton, Floresville, Stockdale, Karnes City, and Kenedy communities. Poteet is accepting applications for 4-year-olds only.
Head Start provides education, health, and social services to preschool children to help them build strong foundations for success rooted in academic achievement and healthy living. The program promotes school readiness by enhancing the child’s social and cognitive development, while advocates for the child’s family connect them to helpful community resources.
A child is eligible to enroll in Head Start if his or her family falls in one of these categories: Family is receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF); family’s gross income falls below federal poverty guidelines; a family member living with and supported by the child’s family is receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI); family is homeless; or child is in foster care.
To be eligible, the child must be 3 or 4 years old on or before Sept. 1 and live in Atascosa, Wilson, Karnes, or Kendall county. Children with disabilities may also be eligible.
Families in Atascosa County (Charlotte, Jourdanton, Pleasanton, and Poteet) wishing to apply should call 830-928-7855. Families in Wilson and Karnes counties (Floresville, Stockdale, Karnes City, and Kenedy) should call 830-928-0802.
